There is a lot of legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go and Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza to name a few. Indeed, Groudon and Kyogre are both amazing Pokemon. But, if you’re wondering which one is the more useful Pokemon to power up or makes the better cover legendary, then you have come to the right place. In this post, we’re going to walk you through a detailed comparison between Groudon Vs Kyogre. So, continue reading and explore things that you may or may not know about these two Pokemon.
Groudon is a ground-type Legendary Pokemon introduced in Generation III. And it is a Primal Pokemon as well. Along with other legendary Pokemon like Rayquaza and Kyogre, Groudon is a member of the Hoenn Weather Trio.
Groudon is a red, grey, black, and white Pokemon with yellow eyes. It features white spikes on its neck and tail. It features white, sharp claws on each its hand and it even has white toes. It features a grayish underbelly. It has a large tail with three white, sharp spikes that appear on the left-hand side and right-hand side of its tail. And a black pattern even goes along its body.
It is an immensely powerful Pokemon, comes with the ability to summon intense droughts and lead to volcanic eruptions. The droughts it causes enable it to evaporate water, whilst volcanic eruptions it can summon allow it to create land. It sleeps underground in big magma chambers. It is the only Known Pokemon who can learn the move - Precipice Blades.
In Pokemon Go, Groudon doesn’t evolve.
While Groudon is not known to evolve into or form any other Pokemon, it can undergo Primal Reversion and turn to Primal Groudon if it holds the Red Orb.
Kyogre is a water-type Legendary Pokemon introduced in Generation III. And it is Primal Pokemon, too. Kyogre is Groudon’s rival and is a part of the Hoenn Weather Trio along with Rayquaza and Groudon.
It appears to resemble something like a giant, dark blue whale or orca. It features two large fins or “wings”, each ending with four square-shaped “claws’. It features a deep blue body and a white chin area with two spikes that protrude under it. Above eyes are two white spots. It features markings on its wings which seem to resemble the letter A with a circle on the top. It even features two small dorsal fins on its back with two stripes that run horizontally below the fins. The tail seems tattered with four trials, the inner smaller in comparison to the outer. It even has a mouth full of rarely seen sharp triangular teeth.
In Pokemon Go, Kyogre doesn’t evolve.
While Kyogre is not known to evolve into or form any other Pokemon, it can undergo Primal Reversion and turn to Primal Kyogre if it holds the Blue Orb.
By now, you have probably got a basic idea of both Groudon and Kyogre. Let’s now get deeper - covering moves and best moves to figure out which one is better.
Groudon can create continents and indeed, it was the creator of all the landmasses in the world of Pokemon. No doubt, it is going to create more land in the future as well. Thus, trainers that get this creature may be able to create their own private islands for themselves.
On the other hand, Kyogre can create oceans. Any player that enjoys Water-type attacks will have great pleasure is getting this Water-type in battle as its ability is extremely amazing.
2: Type Advantage
Kyogre has a type advantage over Pokemon Go Groudon, so this legendary is certainly better in comparison to others in this regard. Players who love to battle each other will love using the Water legendary in battle in comparison to Ground-type.
The type advantage is significant especially between two primal forms - primal Groudon and primal Kyogre and players must take this into account when concluding which Pokemon to use in battle.
If we take a look at base stats of both Pokemon, then they are quite similar - both have a base stat total of 670. So, we can’t conclude which one is better in terms of base stats. We must consider their strengths and weaknesses to get a better idea of which one is better. So, continue reading.
Groudon has a pool of following moves:
- Dragon Tail
- Mud Shot
- Solar Beam
- Fire Blast
On the other hand, Kyogre has a pool of following moves:
- Waterfall - Water (fast)
- Blizzard - Ice (charge, 1 bar)
- Hydro Pump - Electric (charge, 1 bar)
- Thunder - Water (charge, 1 bar)
For Groudon, the best moves are Dragon Tail and Earthquake/Solar Beam while Kyogre’s best moves include Waterfall and Hydro Pump when attacking Pokemon in Gyms.
Nevertheless, for such a giant Pokemon - Groudon in size brings a giant moveset that it can use in battle. It’s worth considering as a moveset can make or break a Pokemon. And with this legendary, it surely makes it. It’s worth teaching a Pokemon Go Groudon a lot of different moves so it has a lot of different kinds of attacks to use while battling.
5: Weakness & Resistances
Groudon is weak against Grass, Ice, and Water moves, while Kyogre is weak against Grass and Electric moves. When it comes to resistance, Groudon is resistant to Rock, Poison, and Electric. On the other hand, Kyogre is resistant to Steel, Water, Ice, and Fire.
As it is now clear - Kyogre seems to do pretty well with two weaknesses and four resistances against three weaknesses and three resistances of Groudon.
6: Primal Form
In terms of primal form, Groudon is better than Kyogre. The primal version of Groudon is a dual-type and it features both Ground and Fire in its arsenal. Even though technically it will give water-type legendary a benefit over this one, it does not change the fact -being dual-type offers all kinds of perks outside of just the two legendaries.
7: Shiny Form
Yes, both have shiny form as well in Pokemon Go. Kyogre’s shiny form is much better in comparison to Groudon. In shiny form, Kyogre is a beautiful pink color, and shiny mega Groudon, on the other hand, is an unusual looking yellow color.
Indeed, most players even agree that Water legendary has a quite better shiny form and it is actually one of the finest in all of Generation III.
The Bottom Line
It is an ongoing debate on should you power up Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. Well, we hope that this post has provided you a basic notion about Groudon vs Kyogre. In the last, all we want to say that Groudon would make better cover legendary in its Primal form than Kyogre. When it comes to base forms, Kyogre is better than Groudon.
